Research to Impact Program Cohort 2 - 2019, Canberra Innovation Network, Wednesday, 04. September 2019

Increase impact of your research and industry engagement using entrepreneurial methods
Researchers from ANU, UC, CIT, Data61, CSIRO and UNSW Canberra may be eligible for a full scholarship ($2000 value). Apply here.
The Research to Impact program is an intensive program for entrepreneurial researchers introducing practical tools that help you to take your idea out of the lab, engage with industry, and find new opportunities.
As a researcher (from HDR student to professor) you may be frustrated by the difficulty of finding ways to translate your idea / technology / knowledge into meaningful engagement outside the lab. You may be frustrated by limited career options, low funding, limited opportunities to engage industry and the wider community.
We use lean innovation methods developed for startups and proven to work for Researchers to:


Show you practical new ways to think about innovation that will enable you to better engage the community


Help you create real collaborative conversations with industry that can lead to opportunities


Challenge you with fast-paced real-world tasks


Empower you to explore new options for your career, industry engagement and commercialising your inventions


Give you new tools to connect and explain your Idea
